costume fun...

I'm not the worst mom in the world!! Tonight, I made a South African costume for Rebecka's upcoming play and it works! Yes - there was cussing and sighing and other expressions of frustration in the process... But nevertheless - I did it!

Pictures to come. It's not an easy task to transform a little 1/2 Swede to a South African - but I did my best. Beads in hair and all. :)

Thanks Dear... There will be pictures tomorrow, because tomorrow is the big day. Apparently dress rehearsal went well today and people could hear her "all the way in the back"... :)

Can you tell me how to make an easy African costume or give me the URL of a website that shows you how to make one?

If for a little kid - get 2 yards of "Ethnic" fabric (Joanne's had a good selection). Buy a black leotard or t-shirt. Wrap fabric around waist and make a knot at the side (I cut part of the fabric off, so I could have a tie - like on an apron). Take a piece of the cloth and tie in a knot at the back of the neck.

Done! :)
